A secret blend of Dupont colors were mixed to make up the base color of the VW with the result being similar to that of Raspberry which was sprayed by it's owner Mark. Mark added 2 inch wider rear fenders, which in turn he welded onto the body. Kamaili of Undertaker Designs was called upon to spray the graphics onto the body which incorporated 3 stage colors of white, yellow, and violet purple all of which a touch of Pearl was added into the mix. Kamaili was also responsible for pinstriping "Hollywood" onto the engine shroud. With the paint job and graphics being completed, Mark blasted 6 coats of clear onto the entire car providing a mirror like lustre for years to come
